Check boxes are a widget to enable one or more options in a group.
- Use checkboxes for non-exclusive options. Mutually exclusive options should use a set of radio buttons.
- For more than 10 options, use a list.
- Checking a checkbox should always "enable" an option or change the state of an option to "on". Checking a negative or disabling option is a double negative and causes confusion and errors.
- Checkbox labels are in sentence style capitalization
